Christensen Arms expands its firearms selection, announcing the release of the new Modern Precision Rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Win.

Weighing less than 7-pounds using a proprietary chassis system, the chassis is machined from 7075 billet aluminum and features V-block bedding to promote accuracy. Additionally, the new Christensen Arms creation offers an adjustable folding stock, oversized fluted bolt knob, free-floating handguard, adjustable comb and aerograde carbon fiber barrel. The company says the rifle is guaranteed to shoot sub MOA.

“The Modern Precision Rifle is a next-generation chassis rifle proudly built from top-tier aerograde materials right here in the USA,” Jason Christensen, President of Christensen Arms, said in a press release.

The rifle comes chambered in either 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 Win in a variety of barrel lengths. Christensen Arms says consumers can expect to see additional calibers, including long-action, in 2018.

The Modern Precision Rifle will officially make its debut on dealers’ shelves in the next six to eight weeks with a MSRP of $2,295.
